    YouTube is a great place.

    I have several channels some with over a million views which create traffic for me every day.

    A little 5 step formula for you

    1) Create 2-3 minute videos that solve problems for your audience.
    2) Upload them to a dedicated YouTube account
    3) Make sure the title, description and tags include your keywords
    4) Add an offer with a link at the top of your description. Remember to use http:// otherwise your link will not work.
    5) Make sure you link goes to a landing page and capture peoples email addresses.

    Hey ho you have a sweet little free traffic strategy working for you 24/7

    To generate free traffic needs involvement.You can try these two sources
    Quora is much like forums, the traffic is much more relevant than many other sources.
    Pinterest can be a massive source of referral traffic.

    In addition to the You Tube method from Bernard which is spot on, you could also have a look in the War Room, as there are a few freebies in there from fellow warriors with regards to free traffic methods?

    You can rank the top 10 sites relevant to your niche... What I mean by that is to make a high quality topic or pay someone to write it ( if you have a budget ) about the top 10 blogs or websites about the same niche and rank these sites then post the topic in your blog and send the topic's link to these websites' owners and ask them to share it with the readers I think they will be more than happy to do this. in this way you will generate tons of free relevant traffic it may sounds easy but the process may be hard at the first time

    in my opinion/experience, one of the best traffic sources is YT AND Google Hangouts that can go also to the top 5 results on Google, so you grab traffic form YT and from Google contemporaneously.

    Build relationships with people and give people value. And use the forums people have suggested previously. They are all good.

    Keep in mind that free marketing is not really free because it takes up a lot of your time, and your time is very valuable. You can always get more money, but you can't get more time.

    Free traffic alone won't do you any good - what you need is free "targeted" traffic. The source would depend on your niche and what you are trying to get out of the traffic.

    #1 Who are you targeting... Who is your "avatar"

    #2) When your just starting out don't try to do it all at once. You will be over whelmed. Pick one platform and stick with it until you see results before moving onto another.

    #3)Video is Key and probably the fastest way to get found! It's SEO Friendly..It can be shared just about any where. It also converts about as well as paid traffic ( sometimes even better).

    Energy and effort, of course

    No really, you'd be surprised just how much you can get done using energy and effort. PLUS:

    Those 2 things don't cost you any moolah.

    I have a friend that created a facebook group where she added all her friends and asked them to also add their friends.

    She made a local sale/trade group and has over 15,000 members now. The members can only post advertisements if they invite 100 other people, so that's how it got so big.

    It is very useful and I think it's a good idea.

    II like to take a little bit of a big picture approach to this question.

    Bill Gate once said, " If I want anything done I give it to a lazy person because the lazy one will find easier ways to get the job done " (paraphrase). It's no surprise he used an automated system (sort of) for his ice bucket challenge.

    No wonder he is the richest man in the world.

    A lot of people have advised sheer grunt work and disguise it by calling it hard work. My advise: Let your hard work be in things that will bring the most value to your business. Don't just go down the 130 list posted above. Ask yourself what is working in 2014. What will work in 2015. What are the thought leaders talking/writing/speaking about. Who are my competitors. What competitive advantages do they have. What tools are they using. What can I automate? how can I get cheap labor? Am I very good at something that I can trade for something else? Can I use the JV approach?

    If you are hoping for success which I hope you do, let your question not just be how to get free traffic but why. Someone might even argue that traffic you get for free may not convert as much as you will like them to.(But that is another beast altogether)

    A couple of ways to get free traffic :

    Start following people on Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, Tumblr, etc. who have the same interests as the niche(s) you promote. Most of them will follow you back. Make it easy for them to find your link to you blog, squeeze page, etc.

    Place free classified ads on OLX(dot)com, UsFreeAds(dot)com, CraigsList, Classifieds - Free Classified Ads Online etc.

    Make videos and put them on YouTube, DailyMotion, etc.

    Re-write some PLR articles into your own words, make them into 5 to 10 page PDF documents and distribute them on Scribd and other document sharing sites.

      Certainly tons of ideas - whatever you do DON'T try ALL of them!
      You only have a limited amount of time per day, right, so planning is important to us newbies in order to get the best use out of our time.
      Pick a couple of techniques and do your homework to get good at them.
      Do them consistently and you will see some results. Then you could develop another technique when you find the first ones easier, as they will be taking up less of your time because you are more familiar with them.
      It always takes 3-4 times longer to do something the first time, than it does to do the same thing after 10 goes!

      Good luck,

      With Fan Pages, you can really almost do anything as it relates to Marketing.

    Hi Melanie, you're asking the wrong question. It's not how do I get free traffic the real question is how do I attract readers.

    First off what is your website about? Who is your target market? Are you writing great content that solves problems they have?

    If you are fantastic! The key now is to write great blog content based on a keyword strategy. You should be blogging as much as possible and because you probably don't have organic search traffic yet you can promote your content. Turn your blog posts into presentations and upload them to presentation sites like SlideShare and AuthorStream - I get alot traffic like that. Also work on building up your audience so they will see it when you share content. In addition you can use tools like StumbleUpon discovery advertising which is really cheap and very effective. Also try websites like JustRetweet Twitter Retweets, More Traffic, Followers & Retweet Tool to get others to tweet out your content. Remember don't be so focused on getting traffic. Instead be focused on creating content that's deserving OF TRAFFIC. If you do that you'll build a great audience of readers in no time! Good Luck!

    Yo can try social signals to your websites, which is must in these days. When I talk about social signals, it covers all social media activities like:-

    - Tweets of Your Sites
    - Facbook Likes on Your Sites Page
    - Facebook Shares
    - Google Plus Votes for Your Site
    - Pinterest Pins

    If you are able to generate them at you own using your circle, that will be the best. And you can generate massive traffic from the above activities.

    Focus on sales conversion.Getting traffic for free can be very tedious unless you have a lot of time and energy. The key is converting that traffic - creating a relationship with it and supporting it is essential. Otherwise there a ton of already stated ways here.

    Yes, it is possible to generate free traffic even if you're on a small budget. Free traffic comes from the social media and online forums.

    If you are advertising on google adwords, of course it is not free. In the meantime, you must realise that if the budget set is too low, it's going to affect traffic performance adversely.

    If I may suggest the least possible budget from a pool of experience, I must say that you start a budget from $1.00 upwards. With this minimum budget, your traffic generation will perform excellently.

    My suggestion is to stick with one marketing method and get good at it then from there venture off into a different tactic. I think people don't see results they desire because they jump around from tactic after tactic without just focusing on one thing. There are many ways to go about free marketing. Blogging, Video Marketing , Forums, Facebook Fan Page to name a few. The trick is consistency with free marketing none of it happens over night.

    Believe it or not, I get a lot of traffic from my many images. Most of this is due to Google images. However, you can also post your images on pinterest and plead - please pin me. There are many other pin boards, but they get a lot less traffic, still, your chances of going viral an a small niche board increase. That will get you a lot of traffic, but poor conversion. Like we can't win em all, but we try any way.

    Youtube is a good place to start cause its free and profitable when done right. Another thing I suggest you do is join as many facebook groups as you can in your niche and start posting on groups. There are ways to automate this process too.

    Hope that helps
